Is it the Ball machine or typebar, if typebar machine where
the keys come up out of the "basket" there are small slots, lubricate that area first with some cleaner such as windex and then a little wd40 or oil such as 3n1 or lite machine oil. Try this may be something more but that area gets dirty and dry....

SOURCE: replacing typewriter ribbon

i have this typewriter also. after replacing the ribbon and print wheel you have to press the (CODE) & (=) keys. This will align itself. I recently had to replace the print wheel and referred to the manual. Works like a charm.

Make sure the ribbon is facing the correct side. Usually, there is a small encave which is to be facing downwards. Snap it in place and you are good to go.

SOURCE: typing

Something else you might check, I was having same problem. Make sure the Daisy Wheel Lock Lever (check the description that comes in the guide) is locked in place, i.e., push it forward to lock. It is the black thing that sticks up on the right inside the correction tape. I did this and words started appearing. Hope it helps.

After typing on a line and i hit return it stops wherever it wants


Clean and lube pulleys, and the silver round bar that goes throught the carrier. Carrier is what hold the ribbons and Daisy wheel. Its gummy and dirty.

My lexmark typewriter space bar will not work and the phrase light is stuck on


The phrase light is also the single space. If only the space bar doesn't workyou may have a bad keyboard or something under the space bar that is in the way.

Space bar key doesn't work


If the keys do nothing at all you probably need a keyboard, if they do something but not what you want try a little WD40 on the silver shaft that guides the carrier. If it's the KB contact Geo. Beyers Co.

Typewriter freezes


Your description is a little vague, does it type letters and freeze when you hit the space bar or or just stop on all keys?
